Here are 4 things to know about this week-
1. I have spent most of my week working on Public Affairs for the LDS Church in my area. That is my assignment right now and I absolutely love it. We talked about church assignments and why we serve on my old blog here. We are all volunteers in the church.
Part of my job is creative. Currently, we are working on what media pieces we going to produce for the area.
We are going to be putting together as much visual media for our area that we can produce for our upcoming events. We have never gone this direction before in this area and it is so exciting. I loved watching the wheels turn in people’s minds last night.
This is a huge blessing for me because…. since I decided to give up shooting photography for profit on the side (Because it just took up too much family time,) I have felt the blessings of home and family life more abundantly…. but I admit I have missed the creative edge it added to my personal growth!
The talented Paul Vogelzang and Marcus Faust from the Washington DC area have been mentoring me and oh boy, do I appreciate what they are doing. They head up the North America, Northeast Area for Public affairs.
I spoke with Paul yesterday, and wow is he brilliant.
I think that is just one of the most exciting parts of service, you never know who you are going to rub shoulders with and what good part you can learn and take away. Serving others just inspires you and helps you grow.
Paul is a media guy with bundles of talent, that is exactly one of the things I wanted to do this year- create more media.
And I am in the perfect position to do so now all in the name of service. Love it!
The church has a bundle of areas where you can share your creative talents. One is at this site and guess what you don’t even have to be a member to do so!
I met last night with our leaders over this area, it was a huge success. I feel like we are moving into the next generation here and everyone is feeling much more comfortable with where we are headed.
2. I just recently looked at the next six months of my husband travels schedule. Yes being married to an ex-BYU Player, I am not surprised, but I just found it a little odd to learn that he has to be at Notre Dame and Georgia Tech the same weekend as the game for meetings.
What a smart guy my husband is!
I learned that many of his management meetings are now based around the BYU Football schedule Away Games.
“He has to be there,” he said.
Hmmm….. still processing this!
I stumbled upon this classic photo when BYU played Notre Dame in 1995. I think that was the biggest day of Brian’s life
3. We miss our daughter Hillary. Right now she is in St. Augustine, Florida on a one-on-one trip with her Grandmother.
Ahhh, isn’t that sweet. They have travelled together before in the past and really enjoy their time together.
She said one of her favorite spots was the stop at Flagler College. This isn’t a college stop, but the college is part of the cultural landscape.
“St. Augustine is a city in the northeast section of Florida and the county seat of St. Johns County, Florida, United States. Founded in 1565 by Spanish explorer and admiral Pedro Menéndez de Avilés, it is the oldest continuously occupied European-established city and port in the continental United States.
St. Augustine lies in a region of Florida known as “The First Coast”, which extends from Amelia Island in the north to Jacksonville, St. Augustine, and Palm Coast in the south.” (Wikipedia)
Hillary has her own blog where you can follow her adventures.
4. I realize this blog is still empty- I am working on it- Promise! I still have to figure out a few technical skills. My old blog Domestic Lifestyle still has all of my past content.
